  1. I had not but I'll keep that in mind for V2! Here is what the current build looks like: This is the 4RU Rack SKB case with the:-Lectrosonics 411 rack (no 411s in at the moment as I'm using them for another job)-Behringer MX882 8-Channel Splitter/Mixer-2RU drawer The MX882 was an extremely cheap way to get this feature although it is line-level only and has no monitoring built-in. Right now I'm using my old MBOX2 Mini to take the Mono mix feed into the PC but eventually I'll probably switch to something nicer. This is more of a proof of concept t
  2. Yeah, looks like I need a rack mixer. Problems I'm running into are that there aren't enough full-size XLR inputs, no Mic/Line switching, little to no VU metering, or a combination of the three. I ordered the Behringer MX882 since its so cheap. It only does line level but that should be fine for now.
  3. So I got the 8pre and it has the same problem. It looks like I haven't been looking for the correct equipment. What I need is a rack-mount mixer, probably aimed at installations like stage performances and houses of worship, not a USB interface for instruments. This seems like a new topic, not sure if I should start a different thread about rack-mount mixers?
  4. Thanks for the advice! The 8pre should be here Monday. Gotta love Amazon: no reason not to just try everything out and return it if it's not what you're looking for.
  5. The JoeCo stuff is really neat! Unfortunately it doesn't look like it has the hardware mixing capabilities I'll need. Also, I don't need a recorder, just an interface as the streaming software on the PC will handle the recording. The RME stuff looks great but it seems to lack hardware knobs/faders for more than 4 channels. My goal is to control all the audio levels from the rack itself so that on the PC I never have to navigate away from the streaming software. I just ordered the MOTU 8pre on Amazon. I'll give that a try and get back to you guys. If that doesn't work I
  6. Absolutely, and I'll go that route if the other rack mount solutions don't pan out.
  7. I looked at your suggestions, it looks like the Audient rack-mount solutions are all mixers and the USB interfaces are just 2 channel units. Its not exactly what I'm looking for but if it ends up being the best solution I'm certainly open to it (I have an old Mbox2 already that I could use as the interface), and the RME units seem to have all front-facing XLR ins or no front panel gain controls. The MOTU stuff looks promising, though. I'm looking at the MOTU 8re USB($549) and the MOTU 8M($1495). Any feedback on these would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hey Olle, That's a good suggestion and may be the way I end up going if I can't find what I'm looking for but I would like to get a rack mounted solution if possible. I have a Sound Devices 633 but I'm trying to negate it for this set-up so that everything is contained in my 4ru SKB case.
  9. Hey, You're right, I probably don't need 8 pres, I'd like to have 4 XLR in's for the 411s and 2 for audio from a TV/Game system and computer audio (All on the rear). The M-Audio was nice because it had two inputs on the front if I wanted to throw in a boom or some other mic. Do you have any preferences in the brands you mentioned? I know a friend of mine has a Focusrite that he says also has bleed issues, probably due to signal strength.
  10. Hello All,I'm putting together a small rack-mount kit and need a USB audio interface for it. I bought an M-Audio M-Track 8 but there were some issues with audio bleeding between tracks, probably due to the signal being too hot coming in, so I'm looking for a replacement. The inputs will be Lectro Wireless, Computer Audio, and audio split from an HDMI input. What I need are:8x or more Pre-Amps (At least 6 of which are on the rear of the unit)USB 2.0 or 3.0 interfaceRack Mountable (preferably 1ru)Hardware Controlled (I.E. Knobs) I think I've primarily been looking at music oriented inte
  11. http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/04/hdmi-2-0-official-4k-60fps-32-channel-audio/ "support for up to 32 audio channels, "dynamic auto lipsync" and additional CEC extensions."
  12. I'll be there. Its not quite NAB East, but its close enough.
  13. I feel like I've seen breakthroughs for new battery technologies every other day. Hopefully one will make it to market.
  14. Just out of curiosity, where are you shooting at in Georgia?
  15. If I'm reading this correctly, in order to get the wireless timecode generation and audio, you need a separate device. REDsync Master - $2900 Weight: Aprox. 1lb Features: RF ISM Band Transceiver 865MHz/915Mhz for wireless audio and timecode Deliver audio stream to multiple devices 802.11b Transceiver Receive and deliver timecode and metadata to multiple devices Able to connect up to 14 devices Supported FPS modes: 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 29.97DF, 30DF. Output sync modes: PAL, NTSC, 720p, 720p double frame, 1080i, 1080p, 1080i double frame, 1080p double frame V Sync and H Sync Output
  16. +1 I want to set the mirroring at the beginning of a project and forget it
  17. Yeah, I ordered a new card immediately. I was so happy I finally got to use the ext mic jack on the back but that poor little card couldn't handle all that info :/
  18. Tries to record an interview on a Zoom H4n in 4 channel mode on an SD card that's only class 4 and ends up with tons of write errors. ...That was me today
  19. Thanks for pointing out iZotope, I've been looking for something like this for a while. I'll definitely be giving it a try tonight.
  20. Thanks, now I remember why I love this forum

  22. I'm doing this on my phone on downtime at work. Search options are narrowing down the forum and changing the way results are listed
  23. Here is the first thread for those interested: And one from 2010 with about 4 replies:
  24. So I searched for "securing lavs", "quiet lavs", "noisey lavs" all to no avail. Finally i looked up hiding lavs which wasnt even what I asked about and what comes up? A thread with people saying the topic has already been discussed! Jesus, if you feel the need to tell people its been discussed just link to the thread it was discussed in or dont't post at all!
  25. I like the idea of an expert "pro tip" topic. While we're talking about clothes rustle and lavs, how about a few lav securing techniques that eliminate that rustle? Lots of top stick? It all depends on the situation but any favorites/old faithfuls?
